At Six

by Tom Goldman

Jan 1, 2019

Arrival/Check-In: After an overnight cruise from Helsinki, I arrived at 9:30 a.m. before the customary check-in. With a welcoming smile and quick check of ID and credit card, the desk attendant provided me with an electronic key, and I was in front of my room within minutes. Unfortunately, the e-key had not expected me until after 10 a.m. and would not work. A quick trip to the front desk, and with profound apologies, the bellman escorted me to the room to be sure I got in.

Guest Quarters: For a standard room, the space exceeded my expectations. In addition to the king-sized bed, it contained a comfortable chair and ottoman with reading light, coffeemaker, separate tea pot, iron and room safe. The bathroom with stall shower was well-equipped with razor and shaving cream; toothbrush, toothpaste and dental picks; and comb.

A large desk space provided multiple USB charging ports and electric outlets, requiring adapters for U.S. charging device plugs.

Part of Nordic Choice Hotels, the 5-star hotel sits on top of a new shopping center. Taking advantage of the elevation contours of the site, the street entrance for the hotel is on the fourth floor, with the main entrance of the shopping center the actual ground floor.

Services/Amenities: The hotel offers a wonderfully extensive breakfast buffet for an additional fee. It is served in a fifth-floor restaurant with a large, sculpture-lined, two-story entrance from the lobby to open, window-lined seating. Considering the relatively high cost of dining in Stockholm, the buffet offers a reasonable value.

For those with time, Old Town is a five-minute walk away, and a 20-minute walk takes you along the waterfront to the bridge connecting the island with Skansen. Here are the historical Swedish living museum; the Vasa Museum, a 300-year-old ship recovered intact from the Stockholm harbor where it sank on its maiden voyage; ABBA: The Museum; Grunland Tivoli amusement park; and other museums.

Stockholm, a lively city in the summer, boasts plenty of restaurants and rooftop bars, many offering music. The only drawback is that some rooms at hotels, including those in the rear of the At Six, are subjected to the loud music well past midnight.


◆ The At Six is well-situated for both business and casual travelers. The staff were universally helpful, friendly and welcoming. Centrally located off the Cultural Center, the hotel sits just a few minutes’ walk from the main train station and a few blocks from the Royal Palace and Opera.

◆ If you need an early, quiet night, ask for a room facing the street and away from the adjoining nightclub at the rear.

◆ The hotel offers access via a separate fourth-floor elevator to the shopping center, where you’ll find anything you may have forgotten.

◆ The international airport lies 30–40 minutes from the hotel by cab or Uber and 20 minutes by express train from the central station.
